Hi everyone new to the forum sorry if i posted in wrong topic section
Well i hv a about one year old Compaq presario CQ 40-330 TU notebook with HDD 160 GB 5400 rpm. Now i am thinking to replace the internal HDD with something like 500 GB 7200 rpm drive. I asked few of my friend they all said that upgradation from 160 to 500 GB wont be a problem but from 5400 to 7200 rpm upgradation will result in more noise, more heat production and consumption of more battery. Eventually it may damage some other system component. I searched the guide book provided by compaq and could not locate a single line which says it supports 7200 rpm drive.
Frankly speaking i am a bit confused right now. please share your valuable advice…and ya which western HDD product you think will suite this laptop???
